Stop genetically engineered foal study & fur industry in Canada

1. Stop a Dutch genetically engineered (GM)-vaccination study in foals from 3 days old until 6 month

2. Stop Canada’s FURociousness!

Background | From Change

This is a petition to the Dutch Minister of Environment who has agreed on a genetically engineered (GM) vaccination study re foals in foals from 3 days old until 6 months.

They use a GM-bacterium. The little horses will stay with their mothers in stables and on grassland and the manure with the GMO in it will be put on the land. The little horses shall eventually be killed (in case of biopsy) after the study is done. The European GMO-free Citizens agree with a Dutch signer who wrote that, GM-vaccines are very dangerous. There is a real risk of the generation of new pathogens with greater virulence and a broader host-range than the original pathogen. And there is no possibility of undoing it.The European GMO-free Citizens don’t want this GM vet-vaccine and have written this petition, which you can sign.

We will go to the Dutch Council of State in the Hague. This topic and these signatures are brought to their attention. The hearing will be on October the 3rd 2011.

 The Dutch Council of State

Advisory body on legislation and administrative court
The Council of State has two primary tasks, carried out by two separate divisions. The Advisory Division, as its name implies, advises the government and Parliament on legislation and governance, while the Administrative Jurisdiction Division is the country’s highest general administrative court. The basis for these responsibilities can be found in articles 73 and 75 of the Constitution.

Like the House of Representatives and the Senate, the Netherlands Court of Audit and the National Ombudsman, the Council is one of the High Councils of State. These are bodies regulated by the Constitution, which carry out their tasks independently of the government.

2. Background | From Change

Every year, thousands of innocent animals such as Coyotes, Elk, Deer, and Bears are slaughtered cruelly for their fur, for coats that a minority of the population buys into anyways. Sign here to STOP the pointless slaughter of these animals and help in the first step to abolishing the fur trade worldwide!

    I’m sorry, but get your head out of your ass and at least publish details of the study from “the horse’s mouth” before flaming this group. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get animal use protocols approved? There are MANY regulations put in place to protect the welfare of animals and the committees that decide on what passes are overseen by licensed veterinarians. Additionally, horses are expensive to use as a vaccine model. There must be an exceedingly good chance of this vaccine being very benefical or it’s an important disease to prevent. I’m just talking from a practical standpoint. I love animals but I also do my damndest to improve their health and welfare through research. Finally, genetically modified vaccines are the new hot button issue for the uninformed to rave about. If it is a potential pathogen, it was probably genetically modified in order to attenuate the bug and to make it more immunogenic. In other words, genes would be IRREVERSIBLY deleted in order to make the bug LESS HARMFUL.
